Yeah, 50th chapter was really sad... though now I'm really interested in how are the things at his house will turn up
Also I've read all 9 (from the 9 volumes) Mero Corners and it's quite sad that the translation groups didn't bother doing them (even though they are just 3-4 pages long) while they have some interesting information like how the first concept of the manga looked like or how he borrowed some designs from Umisho (Rea is Mirei + Kaori and Mero <- Tomoyo).

Just like what happened with Higurashi. I get irritated because I keep backups of everything but I understand that it's illegal to scanlate once licensed. I'll just have to deal with it.

Chapter 51 does seem like it's bringing us closer to the ending. I hope it's not a sad one, although anything involving zombies has a hard time ending in any other way.

IMO it has more to do with the fact that this manga is too damn realistic, it hardly deserves the "supernatural" tag since zombies here have roots in science, not magic or supernatural entities/energies that raise the dead from their graves. As such we are at a point where I can no longer think of how to bring a happy ending, the best thing that can happen at the moment is making Rea snap out of her confused state by stuffing her with leaves but then she would be sent into a Lab for the rest of her life :/

The dead coming back to life is supernatural. Zombies do not have their roots in science, there's nothing scientific about it.

There was never going to be a happy ending. She's a Zombie. Unless the author does a giant ass-pull, the story does not have a happy ending. The best one could hope for is the story ends with Rea being frozen with the hope that one day a "cure" can be found - since her father is looking for one.

There are zombie insects and zombie plants IRL, so you can not really discard the possibility that a parasite or virus (probably man made) could have the effects we normally associate with zombies. Also, in the sankarea universe zombies are the product of a chemical connoction, not some kind of voodoo ritual, therefore they are not supernatural.

Chapter 53
I wonder if there's actually some hope for good ending now that he has returned.

It's gonna be one hell of irony if the main culprit why this shit started in first place ends up becoming the savior. And I'll love it.

Really? Your examples aren't what you think they are. When the term "zombie" is used to describe a plant or insect it doesn't mean something that is dead. The term "zombie" means mindless. There are no zombies anywhere in nature. I can't believe I have to say that. Wow.

SankaRea is supernatural. There is no explanation as why the potion turns someone into a zombie. It's just a matter of drinking it and then you are a zombie. To use your words, that's voodoo. In fact voodoo has potions too. So you really don't know what you are talking about.

If the story explained the mechanism by which the potion transformed someone into a zombie, then it would be science fiction. As it stands it does not, hence supernatural.

the problems is "what we understand for zombies"
some people use the media image, dead person(animal) moving and haunting the living, but the word zombie has a lot of definitions, just like RightSaidFred said.

in the nature we can see examples were a fungus(parasite), can destroy/manipulate the host brain...but to apply this to a human ...a human brain is a very complex system( immune system), but i suppose that is not impossible....in a lot of years

how we can do that,...that is another thing, we need to choose a very specific virus or bacteria, then create a variant, a mutation with the capacity to attack a specif part of the system ,and overrun his function..but this is a very difficult thing to do, even in a simple organism, the capacity to adapt and create a resistance is so amazing,......and let no start with a complex system

woodoo is science + religions, a lot of the potions and "powder", have a scientific background, eve the so called "zombie powder", is the use of the puffer fish poison.

but all this is when the "specimen" is alive, if we talk about a death specimen, the problem is different, even with the "reviving the dead experiment", fully return a thing from dead is something theoretical, because first we need to understand what is a living specimen, .. we can recreate the life force ( tricky definition ) trough electrical impulse, generating the same energy to create a biological rhythm (you can see nazis, sovietics and american experiment about reviving thing...but you can suffer a little).

even in the hypothetical case where you can create a specimen with a controlled biorhythm and rotting.. the specimen become a empty shell ....and to this you need add the ability move at will so he can be called a zombie.

at the end is just a theory(science fiction), but in sankarea, they use a potion to maintain life, but the zombie also maintain all his characteristics so, it is supernatural story, with a "fake but interesting " concept.
----------
i really hope that chihiro chop rea head off, that is the way to go...if you want another end , you shouldn't play with dead people in first place.

but,this is a story about a "boy and a girl", so the most possible end is a bittersweet one

Huh, I wonder what was real and what wasn't in the latest chapter (pretty sure it's obviously the latter but I need more details)... guess there's just one month of waiting left.
